There are two main types of cartridge faucets: one and two handle faucets. A single handle faucet operates in an up/down motion to adjust water volume and left/right motion to adjust the temperature. From outside, a double handle cartridge faucet is identical to a compression washer faucet. You can tell the difference by noting how the handle feels when used. A compression faucet requires you to tighten down the washer in order to close water flow while a cartridge faucet requires smooth and consistent action to close water flow. When you move the faucet for just ½ turn you are able to move the handle from on to off position.
Two handled. Kitchen faucets are also available in two handled varieties. There are special controls for cold and hot water as well as pressure of water and its temperature. You need to have three outlets on the sink or countertop to install such faucets. One outlet is for the spout of the faucet while the other two are for the gauges. Most of these varieties of faucets come with antique Victorian appearances to them. However, you can also select from urban and chic looking styles.
You will also need to determine the handle options for your kitchen faucets. You can get one that has one handle as it is allows water to flow faster and easily. You can also adjust the temperature with just one hand. You can also get one that has two handles which will give you the right temperature and water flow adjustments that you need. These also make use of two or more holes that you might have in your kitchen. You can also try out the pull out spray faucets which have a head that you can pull out and you can also change the pattern of the water with just a touch of the button.
